Does anyone know the quality of the current Auto Ordnance 1911A1 standard pistols? I'm familiar with AO's old-time rep and read Dean's WWII AO report.

The reason I'm asking is that I can get a new 1911A1 from AO at a VERY good price with my NRA Instructor's discount. I've been holding out for a Colt, but I could get the AO now instead of waiting another year or so to have the cash for a Colt.

This would be my first 1911 pattern pistol and first .45 ACP. I'd probably use it for some training classes as a loaner pistol and possibly, depending on several factors, for carry myself.

Nope, I saw the endnote, but it said that as of "2000 Kahr was concentrating on the Thompson" and that might not bode well for the 1911. 2000 was four years ago and I'm wondering if there was more current info available. For instance, did you ever get a current production, Kahr made AO 1911A1 to test?
